Yup, yup, yup, it was just a matter of time until I did this one. This is a horribly overwrought SF song full of faux portentiousness and belabored rhymes. I kinda' dig it just the same, there's something plaintive about it, but I've resisted putting it on here because its comment about the Second Coming bothers me. Disrespectful. Even so, I've gotten several requests for it - it *is* after all, a well-known SF song, and a modest hit for Nebraska's own Zager and Evens.
